According to The Wall Street Journal, New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman has opened a legal investigation against several energy drink manufacturers at once.
Representatives of companies such as Monster Beverage, Living Essentials и PepsiCo. Their distribution methods have been criticized. By their actions, manufacturers are believed to be misleading consumers, hiding from them the real impact of energy drinks on health.
Often, beverage cans simply do not list all of the ingredients that go into them. Or their number is silent. So, it is argued that ginseng and taurine play an important role in increasing the tone. But this completely hushed up caffeine, which, according to the court, has a much stronger effect. At the same time, the consumer does not receive information about how much of this substance is contained in each bank. It only says that it exists. Other violations were also found.
However, even if the fact of violation is proved, it should be expected that manufacturers will simply get off with fines. Well, advertising companies will have to change a little.
